Students are interviewed as a research team made up of a certain number of students (3-5) where services are provided through the Student Research Unit.
Organizing the participation of students in conferences.
Providing the necessary assistance to students to facilitate the publication of research.
Organizing and supervising courses and workshops for student research.
Preparing student research topics in coordination with the departments and following them up.
Hosting students from foreign universities through the student exchange program for the purpose of training on scientific research mechanisms
The unit seeks to develop communication mechanisms with the authorities related to scientific research at the faculty or university level.
It is possible to coordinate and implement a number of courses, workshops, for interested students to strengthen their research skills so that the unit aims to provide specialized courses in the form of short courses (one or two days) for a limited number of students (15-20) students, in coordination with the available computer laboratories The faculty and the reservation of halls according to the quality and effectiveness of the course offered.
